RB Fires

A crew heads toward smoke Saturday at the Monticello fire about 5 miles west of Winters off Highway 128. The blaze tripled in size and forced residents to flee at the Golden Bear Estates subdivision. It was one of several weekend infernos in the region, with other hot spots at the Sacramento-Placer county line, in Roseville and just south of Cal Expo.
